Many of those who need a level 2 qualification in Maths ask how to get Maths GCSE quickly, and the answer is that there are a number of options. Firstly, the fastest way to get a level 2 qualification in Maths is to complete a functional skills Maths exam. This is accepted as a GCSE grade C/Level 4 by most universities and employers. The main advantage of functional skills is that you can get registered and get the certificate within a few weeks, sometimes as little as 2 weeks, whereas the standard GCSE takes months. Use the form below to see if you are eligible for a free GCSE Maths or functional skills Maths course:

If you are still interested in studying the full GCSE Maths course quickly, then you must register for the exam as soon as possible, as there are only 2 exam sittings a year, in November and in May/June. In order to complete the qualification, you will have to complete 3 exam papers at an exam centre. You cannot sit the exams online like functional skills Maths. You can register for a GCSE Maths exam below.
